11. Can you tell me more about this wiki?

The S-d wiki is a comprehensive guide to the works of Sherwood Smith set in the world of the same name. From the planet's cosmology to the terms often used that we off-worlders are unfamiliar with, this website attempts to explain the ins and outs of S-d. The reader's fascination by the richness and immense details of Sherwood's world is usually matched with a desire to organize such information; many have expressed a wish for a reference guide of this nature. The main categories are indicated in the sidebar, but beneath the surface you will find related groups, categories and articles.

Of course, this website is, first and foremost, a wiki. According to Wikipedia, the king of all wikis, a wiki is "a collaborative website which can be edited by anyone with access to it." The more people contribute to this website, the better, larger and more complete the S-d wiki becomes. However, due to sensitive copyright laws and general security concerns, you must obtain a special password in order to be able to edit any articles. Also, as it is too burdensome to run a registration system, only regular contributors will have accounts. Guest editors are welcome, however, and should read the proper section under the Editing Guidelines. It is also customary to cite textural support, or if none is available, the abbreviation for popular sources. See the Citation Handbook for details.

Take a look around, and see what you can find!
